Heres my dilemma, Just after the announcement of the Late 2013 rMBP I noticed in Apples Refurb store an early 2013 13 rMBP for $1259. I felt it was an excellent deal and didnt think the updates where that big of a deal, but Im now starting to ask myself if I should just get the newer model out. Would love some help from everyone. Here are the specs of the early 2013 I picked up from the Refurb store: 2.6GHz Processor 8GB Memory (RAM) 256GB SSD A comparable Late 2013 rMBP (with Student Discount) would be $1,399 for: 2.4GHz Processor 8gb Memory (RAM) 256GB SSD I use my laptop for the following: Web Browsing, email, note taking iMovie, iPhoto Aperture Possibly light use of Photoshop, FCP, & Lightroom Price cannot exceed $1,399. I would be interested in hearing honest opinions on performance comparisons in general. I realize the SSD speeds will be slightly higher, but in general, would you say saving/spending approx. $130 makes sense in either direction? Thanks!
